    Andy Tauer - L'Air des Alpes Suisses

    The head notes are fresh like a breeze from treeless mountain summits: rough granite ground, the cool air from the glacier, and bitter alpine herbs. The heart notes are fresh, green with hints of spices. Floral delicacies such as the red alpine lily bloom on lush meadows, powdery, spicy, green. The body notes are inspired by alpine forests on cliffy slopes: the woody warmth of timber, larch and beech, with the sweet amber perfume of dry earth in the sun.


    When I find time, I love to hike in the mountains. Starting in the valley, with its lush green meadows, the dark fir forests with the perfume of warm amber. L’Air des Alpes Suisses is inspired by these moments, green, fresh and ambery. It is a perfume that evokes my memories of wonderful days in the Alps. The higher you hike, the more you wander to open space, with wild flowers blooming in a short mountain summer. The herbaceous, spicy perfume of the alpine grassland, with hints of lily and orchids, mixes with the bresh breeze from the rough mountain summits. L’Air des Alpes Suisses is an invitation to explore this wonderful scenery.

    The Alpes:

    The Alps are the highest and most extensive mountain range system that lies entirely in Europe, separating Southern from Central and Western Europe and stretching approximately 1,200 kilometres (750 mi) across eight Alpine countries (from west to east): France, Switzerland, Monaco, Italy, Liechtenstein, Austria, Germany, and Slovenia. The mountains were formed over tens of millions of years as the African and Eurasian tectonic plates collided. Extreme shortening caused by the event resulted in marine sedimentary rocks rising by thrusting and folding into high mountain peaks such as Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn.

    Mont Blanc spans the French–Italian border, and at 4,810 m (15,781 ft) is the highest mountain in the Alps. The Alpine region area contains about a hundred peaks higher than 4,000 metres (13,000 ft).

    The altitude and size of the range affects the climate in Europe; in the mountains precipitation levels vary greatly and climatic conditions consist of distinct zones. Wildlife such as ibex live in the higher peaks to elevations of 3,400 m (11,155 ft), and plants such as Edelweiss grow in rocky areas in lower elevations as well as in higher elevations.

    L’Air des Alpes Suisses comes as Eau de parfum, it is unisex and totally wearable all day and all year long.

    L’Air des Alpes Suisses builds on highest quality ingredients. Various accords play with the theme of hiking from the valley with its little villages up to the land of ice and snow: The woody accords are constructed on notes of amber gris, tonka, fir and birch tree and dried needles, flowery notes of lily and orchid balance the spicy orchestra with notes of wild thyme and basil, rosewood, nutmeg, mountain lavender and a dash of lemon balm.


    With fir and ambergris in the base I am very much excited for this. The inspiration and imagery are almost enough to make me blind-buy a bottle, but I'm taking it with a grain of salt though since I don't always get along with the 'Tauerade' present in most of his fragrances.

    Yes! Tauerade tends to create a heavy amber powder, so that would probably put off a number of members of this group. Dosage is everything...
